Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella Pushes for Nico Williams Signing

Spanish Teammate’s Potential Move to Chelsea

Chelsea star Marc Cucurella is eager for his club to sign his Spain teammate, Nico Williams, from Athletic Club. The winger is available for around €55 million this summer due to a release clause in his contract. While there is uncertainty about where the 21-year-old will end up, Cucurella believes Williams would be a “great signing” for Chelsea.

Speaking to Spanish outlet Sport, Cucurella praised Williams, saying, “He is a great player. He is bringing out all his potential. He is a source of pride that he is on our team, that he is our teammate and with players like him everything is easier.”

Cucurella is actively encouraging Williams to join Chelsea, adding, “It all depends on what he wants to do. I’m pushing him to sign for Chelsea. In the end, it all depends on him. He’s very young, with a lot of experience, and I think he’ll be a great player.”

He also highlighted what makes Nico Williams and Barcelona’s Lamine Yamal special as wingers. “The good thing about them is that they do their own thing. They don’t seem to care about anything, they play the game as if it were a training session or with friends. That makes them different, to play with this self-confidence and joy that people like. On top of that, if they play on your team, you enjoy them,” Cucurella said.

Cucurella also mentioned his conversation with Marc Guiu, the young forward who recently signed for Chelsea from Barcelona. “We spoke and I told him that if he needed anything, he should let me know. I’m happy because he’s a great player, very young, with a very promising future and we’re going to take care of him so that he can play his best football,” Cucurella said.

When asked if he found it “strange” that Guiu wanted to leave Barcelona at 17 before making his debut for the club, Cucurella responded, “It’s complicated. All footballers want to play. Some have held out, been patient and have not had the opportunity. Football is difficult, nobody guarantees you anything, you have to take advantage of your opportunities and think about your future.”

Cucurella is expected to start for Spain against Germany in the first Euro 2024 quarter-final on Friday.
